Isabella is in LOVE with everything Christmas which is a huge change from last year when she had no clue what was going on.
The ornaments (which I have found a few hidden and tucked away in her room, cute!), the gifts under the tree, the songs, the singing animals at the stores...everything! And if you are wondering...we didn't make it to see Santa yet...that will be this Friday after my prenatal appointment, yay!
Anyway, I've always been a firm believer that when I have a child or children I want the season to be for them. Learning about Jesus, his birth, giving to others, donating money to different causes as they are out in the bitter cold hoping to get some change that will make a difference. I want her to know that the season is for giving to others and to know what we are celebrating.
I recently nominated a family for an amazing Christmas giveaway. You had to nominate them on the Barefoot Mommies blog and then readers voted to see who would be the winner.
Guess what...my family won! (It was actually a tie!). I was so touched by the people who took time to vote for the nominated families. I am so happy I could help make another family's Christmas a little brighter. It could be my hormones, but I was crying as I saw how many votes my family got. It. was. amazing.
So, this Christmas, if you have a chance to make someone's season a little brighter....I urge you to do so...this was so rewarding for me to do this.
